PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Oct 13, 2016) - Leading historical preservationist Dr. Robert B. Pamplin Jr. has made his International Collection of Art and History available for viewing at his winery, Anne Amie Vineyards, one of Oregon's most forward-thinking wineries. The art can be viewed during regular tasting room hours -- daily from 10:00 a.m. until 4:45 p.m. -- while also enjoying fine wines and breathtaking views of the vineyard and Pacific Coast Range.
To preserve the integrity of the works, the paintings displayed at the winery are copies on canvas of the originals in Pamplin's private collection. The art featured at the winery represent works from both American and European artists and illustrators, including "My Son's Wife" by Pruett Carter and "Mending" by Daniel Ridgway Knight. Ten pieces are exhibited within the tasting room.
"I have been collecting art for decades and have focused on artists whose stories are unique and, in some cases, pivotal to the history of our nation," said Pamplin. "Anne Amie Winery provides the perfect venue to share a portion of my art collection, allowing the public to enjoy these great works with great wine."
Pamplin's fine art collection encompasses several facets of European and American art history. The collection includes works by Rembrandt, Benson and Gainsborough as well as many famous illustrators.
For more than 40 years, Pamplin and his wife Marilyn have been dedicated to collecting antiquities and works of art that illuminate distinct periods in history, diverse cultures and iconic individuals. Parts of Pamplin's collection have been exhibited in museums around the country, and more can be experienced online at www.pamplincollection.org.
